Visited for breakfast and it was an overall good experience. The decorations give the restaurant a unique vibe. I’d recommend the eggs benny…yum. The only hiccup was with my vegetarian benny…a bit of crunchy bacon found its way into my potato rosti… not so great.

Five of us went to Tooloulous for breakfast. We went at 8.30 am so did not have to line up. The restaurant was already almost full. The service was very good and the breakfast food options were great. Would certainly go again.

We went to this restaurant for breakfast following a number of recommendations. To be honest we were slightly disappointed as we expected great things following reviews and recommendations. The food was ok but not great. The coffee was pretty poor and I had to ask...three times for cream. The servers seemed more interested in standing chatting than serving. We also felt rushed to leave so they could use our table, So it was ok, nothing startling and service was pretty poor.More

Service was excellent by very attentive staff. We were seated and orders taken quickly. So service was good but food was poor. Massive overload of celery and peppers with little sea food. The bisque was not a bisque. Closer to a chowder again full of...celery & peppers.More

I have been working in the F&B industry for some years. I’m not an expert, but when I got to the restaurant it took a lot of time to order. Many employees were just talking. I ordered my steak medium, they gave it medium rare....I think the only one person was the guy at the bar who was training a girl. I had to take my food to go.More

Tooloulou’s. Nice little hole in the wall southern Louisiana vibe restaurant. We were instantly drawn in by the signage out side for the unique opportunity to have alligator. Food wise we ordered a couple appetizers and a quesadilla to share and was going to add...fries and was advised that our order was a fair size and fries may be to much so we held off. When the food arrived we knew we should have ordered the fries.. The Alligator bites were 3/5 just heavy on the batter. The Bourbon Glazed Pork belly was a 2/5 and was heavy on the BBQ souce. It was also a very small portion and not as tender as we expected. The Tabasco chicken wings were 2/5 as it was dry and we needed to add more of the table hotsouce to enjoy. The Quesadilla was 4/5 and made the experience better. I would possibly return to try the rest of the menu but not the top of my list.More

we had a fantastic breakfast food here. Small, but awesome. I wish we had found it earlier in our trip because I would love to have dinner there sometime for their Cajun specialties.

Had dinner here recently and it was both a enjoyable and eclectic experience. The food very tasty and plentiful, we were given more scallops, as our server (we think he was the proprietor) thought the chef hadn't given us enough to start with. The second...serving scallops were both larger and better cooked, though both were slightly overcooked, apart from that all the food was delicious. Service was interesting and definitely not high end. We were brought our mains before our starter plates were cleared. But that didn't matter, we felt like we were in a family restaurant and everything was very welcoming and comfortable. Definitely worth a visit.More

What a breakfast we had, it was massive and really well cooked. The service was great too. The only downside is that you may have to wait to get a table, they do give you a pager so that you can have a walk around...to kill time.More

We wanted a local place and this didn’t disappoint. The choice of breakfast will leave you wanting to come back every morning to try it all. We settled on pancakes and smoked salmon bagel…. Delicious It does get busy as good good attracts us all🤷🏼‍♀️

Tooloulou's offers an amazing variety of options for breakfasts. The food is excellent with large portions. The service friendly and very good. One should look at the menu before going since there is so much offered. Our group went there three mornings in a row...because it was so good. It is busy so plan for a wait. However, it is worth it.More

Wanted to try something different and found this creole resto at the other end of town. Small crowd inside, and had to wait to be seated for about 20mins or so. Tried their crab cakes, steak and the back ribs. Cake was very good, the...steak was very small and the bbq back ribs were a bit dry. In the pricey side and small servings, I suggest you look somewhere else. Service is pretty good, though.More

We visited twice during our stay in Banff, their pancakes are amazing! My husband had the Cowboy Fricassee Hash which he loved and their Makin' Bacon pancakes which I had with blueberries were the best pancakes I've ever eaten. The staff were lovely and friendly,...on both visits we got there early which paid off!More
